Thanksgiving night I was brought via ambulance with severe abdominal pain and passing out. I had a ruptured ectopic pregnancy. I had emergency surgery and my left fallopian tube was removed. Lost 2L of blood. Lucky to be alive, but sad to have a second pregnancy loss this year, and a loss of my fallopian tube. I hope all goes well for everyone else.

Oh wow, that is a lot to take in, almost like two losses. I am glad you are alive, and send you my best wishes for quick healing!

Peaceful mama to three blissfully-birthed and incredible small people: dd10, dd7 and ds5. Always awed and so thankful to be a midwife.

I am so sorry Turtlewomyn, that sounds very scary in addition to being very sad.
I have had 2 losses this year but fortunately they were uncomplicated.

My thoughts are with you and your babe.
